This is the greatest kitchen tool i've ever owned. I've tried many garlic tools that just don't work properly, but this does! It does everthing the ad says and more. It is so comfortable and easy to use. I haven't had a garlic odor on my hands since I got this. Peel your galic carefully and then crushand rock. Then pour or scoop garlic out with a spoon. Also the ad says easy to clean. Well that's an understatement! No more digging garlic out of little holes, just tap out with spoon. If any stays it rinses right out. Seems pricey but it isn't. It is woth every penny. My favorite kitchen gadget.
